    I would offer:

    • Good fielders can have bad years.
    • A partial season's worth of UZR data isn't much better than, say roughly 1.5-2 months worth of batting data.
    • Bruce can be a fine fielder AND not be as good as his peers.

    Not if done with reference to a post and a general query. That beats the heck out of mushy general allegations that do nothing but stir trouble - as likely intended by such a post.

    Let's talk about how hilarious this lineup is from one of the early 2008 games that I attended that season, LOL

    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    I think I might have attended that game.


    I'll be damned if I don't think Country Kepp is still a useful player. Encarnacion too, but likely not on an NL team.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    I'm not going to "name names", and I'm not sure that it is even relevant as I wasn't going after any specific poster anyway.

    This was the worst lineup I've ever seen..

    I want to talk about Roberto Petigine and why Kurt Stilwell wasn't invited to Barry Larkin's number #11 retirement party.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Let's talk about the time Jerry Narron pinch hit Juan Castro for Josh Hamilton.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Let's talk about the time Bob Boone shifted Juan Castro around the infield on a batter by batter basis. Who was he trying to keep the ball from being hit to?

    No. On second thought, lets talk about this team and all the great things about 2012.
    "Even a bad day at the ballpark beats the snot out of most other good days. I'll take my scorecard and pencil and beer and hot dog and rage at the dips and cheer at the highs, but I'm not ever going to stop loving this game and this team and nobody will ever take that away from me." Roy Tucker October 2010

    Then why even type it? All it did was stir one poster to defend himself against accustations you were apparently not making against him. Its bush league.
